Definitely only AC. The lack of alternating current in a DC power supply will only deliver half the voltage into the unit. So it will not power the Looper. You will need to get a 9V Alternating Current power suply.

Thanks for the quick response. I was hoping for a more intelliegent power cct. on board that would take into account that most customers in your market use standard 9vdc on their rigs. I guess I am SOL for using the looper on this road trip.
In searching for this answer I went through the manual, and numerous sites. It was not listed anywhere. In fact online some replies talk about center pin polarity which is only for DC supplies.
I found *lots* of postings around the net on the complaint/problem that the line6 power supply does not handle anything but 110/120 v input. This is a significant device damaging and user unfriendly feature. If line6 shipped a supply that could handle 120/220 inputs, warranty returns would go down, customer satisfaction would not be damaged as is now the case, AND the product would be enhanced with a more portable, lighter, and user friendly power source.
There are good low noise switching power supplies used in many audio systems today.
